so, age-old dilemma of everyone wanting to automate the addition of new accounts to the Jabber service?
I spent all night up at work trying to develop a suitable solution.
thus far what I have is a perl script which can be run securely via the server (either directly with ssh or telnet, or with the more efficient solution of setting it up as a chron job to run every hour or so)
on the to-do list before it is actually use-able as an a standalone script is:
-=if going the chron route=-
-get the new usernames from a file/database (to do multiple at a time/save bandwidth/cpu)
-check it with the usernames already in use (very easy)
-save a log of each success and email any erroneous setups to whoever
-=if going the ‘web-based’ approach=-
-I really don’t see how this can be done without leaving huge security risks open on your site…
-I am contemplating, tho…
anyways: if anyone wants more details on what it involves, or if they want a copy of what I have so far for their own usage, just let me know.
